The shop is hosting a range of merchandise from both Sheeran and Hoax, the Suffolk clothing company who regularly work with the singer.

Hundreds of fans had already joined the queue when the shop finally opened at 5pm.

Among the those queuing along Butter Market was 17-year-old Lucy Littley from Devon, who had spent an hour and a half waiting to enter the shop.

Lucy and her friends had made the seven hour trip to Ipswich to see the singer for all four nights of his gigs.
